Year 2

Working Scientifically


'Working Scientifically' skills underpin all areas of the Science curriculum. These are skills that are transferrable between different topics and are built on every year to help us to become accomplished scientists.


In Year 2, the 'Working Scientifically' objectives are:


  • I can ask questions and know they can be answered in different ways.
  • I can watch closely using equipment.
  • I can do tests.
  • I can name and group.
  • I can use my observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions.
  • I can collect and record data to help answer questions.


Over the year, we will be addressing all of these objectives through the different science topic areas above.
